Status: In Production
The MCP1624/3 are compact, high-efficiency, fixed frequency, synchronous step-up DC-DC converters. Both provide an easy-to-use power supply solution for applications powered by either one/two/three-cell alkaline, NiCd, NiMH, one-cell Li-Ion or Li-Polymer batteries. The MCP1624/3 can be paired with any PIC® microcontroller bringing flexible intelligence to any single cell or low voltage application.
This evaluation board uses the MCP1640 in a high-efficiency (up to 96%), fixed frequency (500 kHz), step-up DC-DC converter. It demonstrates:
The MCP1640 Single Quadruple-A Battery Boost Converter Reference Design demonstrates how the MCP1640 device, with the True Output Disconnect Shutdown option, works attached to a microcontroller application. This board demonstrates how to optimize battery life using the MCP1640, and an 8-bit low cost PIC microcontroller, to reduce the No Load Input Current for applications that operate in Standby...
